Thanks everyone! I'm honestly very touched at the overwhelming response to this piece. I had a lot of fun putting it together, and the squirtle now sits proudly on my bookshelf as a reminder
Based on some of the responses I've read elsewhere, it seems that a fair number of people don't believe the comments about guys shaking as they posed with the babes. All I can say is, that was a recurring comment that more than one girl made to me, and I have no reason to believe that they were making it up.
Sometimes the truth hurts
